HMS Victory by Archicar - Caldercraft - Scale: 1/72 FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Just Sat Down to start a few more gun ports, realized and thought,There is no more 1x10mm, there was only one length I have 5x16m lengths, am I using the wrong size for the gun ports? Oh what a great end to a rubbish day!  Time to make a coffee and re read the book.  :(

=/ Well I hope you weren`t using the wrong one, but otherwise you can just buy some more wood, which isn`t even bad, as it is always good to have spare wood.

i eventually put the bow gun-ports into place and glad i did so, it takes a while to set up the correct position though, - you build looks great

Well that was a nice coffee, Yep 1x10mm I have ordered more, Just waiting for them now from CWM ,been looking over what i have done, not sure if I like how the gun ports have come out, I may Prime the wood, and see who it looks after. Still having fun, I either work on the ship or not depending if i'm tired from work etc

 

Schnu, Im also glad i have not been using the wrong size, but you know when just have that feeling something is wrong.

Kevin, Thanks, Ill have a look at yours in a bit. once i have cleaned up after dinner..

Thanks in advance for stopping by,

Congrats rich... How do you hide something this big.. and build noisy.. ??

Hey.. That's exactly the sander I use here too.. In the USA. And thanks for the 4th Greetings.

God Bless the Queen as well.

Another toy that I find indispensable is the small Dremel rechargeable drill. I cannot get along without it putting on the side planks. I predrill my holes partially, and then the nail.. and a hammer.

Forget the push pin gizzy.. I started with it, then got the drill. No regrets..

Again. congrats.. I rarely give structural advice, as there are super model builders here to do that.

Thankfully. I lean on them a lot.

HI everyone, 

Haven't really done any thing been far to busy at work at the moment to to any work in the Ship Yard No 10,

 

I have played with my sander and cutting 85mm planks for the deck. 

 

I hope to start planking the deck for the inner gun ports. I'm doing this now before the inner pattens as i'm not happy at the hight of a gun pattens

 

Right off to work.

HI All, Sorry about the lack of updates, Thank you all for a stopping by looking commenting and/or liking, Very much appreciated.;

 

I have planking the upper deck  ( not yet at a stage im happy with, needed sanding and  weathering

 

 I have planked up the starboard side above the gun ports im now happy with it, I put the inner patterns in with a strip of 1x4mm in to give my edge, the cannons  fit very nice like this, i still dont understand why the patterns are out...

 

Ill up date soon,

Rich,

Your a brave man allowing the Rabbit of Caerbannog on your build.  Look at the Teeth!

It gives a great indication of scale though. Thats quit a lot of cannons to rig.

HI all,

I have added the Wales (Pic to follow), over the last few days which I found at time hard, well the lineament of the first one, I have how ever, Stand up and say i made a mistake, I used 1x4mm for the upper Wales, For what ever reason I had read it but the time i came to them forgot it should be 1x3.5mm,, So this had to be cut out and re done.  Im happy with it now. 

 

I now need to start lining the lower gun ports.. Not a task I'm looking forward to....

After some help,

 

I have lost a few part of the lining, I spent about 45min setting up and then trying out some linings, but stopped as I  was a little tried, and tbh was not in the mood to do any to much, i'm still aching from the weekends, ( I got a new tattoo, a few word so celebrate my 15th weeding anniversary) and along day at work with a "" I know it all... and I got I wrong ... Apprentice"")

 

Anyway..

 

Q1" is there a good way of doing this?

Q2" What about, putting a match stick style level with the opening before lining? 

 

thank you in advance

Hi Rich.

Making Exelent progress with the Victory. Looks good :)

 

Well I did it I just brought this, I have had hours of fun already...... Hiding it from the wife :)

They had a new other little toys I may get to play with..

I also got the same sander.

The rotary face was about 1.5 mm out of true when I got mine. The replacement was not much better.

So I bore'ed out the shaft hole and resleaved it.

Other than that it a great sander.

 

Regards Antony.

Hello rich

If you simply want to add internal shelves inside the gun ports to support the linings , you can also make a simple tool. A few builders have done this. Use 2mm x 2mm balsa for the shelves as you can easily trim it if it is out of position once it's glued. Here's a simple tool you can make to help. DAVID

With Lining the Gun ports I have taken advices given and battened be hind with 3.2x3.2mm Balsa strip, ( its the smallest size the model shop had)  but I think the right size for this task, worked well Lining with the 1x6mm stips I have spend the best part of about 5hours do the port side lower gun port. I have filled a few that i think looked a little out of place, but happy with them. No rushing sat there watching Tv and a Movie...

 

The first Picture is me watching Moves on my Tablet as the wife wanted to watch something else, Ill Be working of the port side middle gun ports next tomorrow at some port.

I'm going look maybe next weekend in getting a primer for the wood be for I start painting next month. ( any advice)?
